The Refinery – Venue Guide

Welcome to the Refinery venue guide! The Refinery features our industrial rustic vibe with steel beams, raised ceilings, whitewashed brick, and custom chandeliers. The space also has windows and access to our loggia and patio. The maximum occupancy in the Refinery is 160 guests and has a unique layout for each event.

Each section below provides more in depth information about each portion of a traditional event. Each event is different so details will vary as you work directly with our events team to execute your vision.

The timing below is used as an example, understanding your contracted start and end times may vary.

Ceremony – The Atrium – 5:30 PM – 6:00 PM
Your dedicated Perona Farms ceremony coordinator will time the ceremony to start and flow directly into cocktail hour. Feel free to make your invitation time 15 minutes before the ceremony start time to help avoid late arriving guests!

Cocktail Hour – The Lounge & Loggia – 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Cocktail hour is generally one hour long within our indoor and outdoor spaces. We strongly recommend doing a first look prior to your ceremony and taking all your couple, and wedding party photos prior to the ceremony so you can enjoy the cocktail hour with your guests.

Reception & Dinner – The Refinery – 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM
Timing here will vary greatly depending upon the size of the wedding party, number of dances and toasts, etc.

There are designated restrooms for ladies and men with handicap accessibility. There are spaces in the ladies and men’s rooms for bathroom baskets or other items to be displayed.

You are permitted to use real candles throughout the Refinery – as long as they are protected on the sides and bottom by glass or other suitable material. Candles may not drip on the the floors or tables.

There is an intelligent color lighting system installed in the Refinery and is available at no additional cost!

There are two fire pits in the outside Loggia space. One of these fire pits will allow for you to make s’mores with your guests. You may provide the supplies to us and we can set it up for you!

Example Refinery Seated Layout for 150 Guests

The Refinery has two private suites with the venue available for rental on the day of your wedding.  They may not be rented by any other couple at Perona Farms that day and are solely for your use if you book them.

The suites are tucked inside the Refinery and are available for rental on the day of your wedding. They exhibit an industrial/rustic feel to enhance your experience while getting ready on your big day. While the wedding party will be divided to get ready in their own prospective suites for the majority of the day, there is a retro, communal space called The Archive where the whole party can congregate throughout the day! The Archive has a private bar and unique seating providing even more photo opportunities.
